Thanks for the clarification.  It's not that big a deal, but I
expected it to "just work" after skimming the code, and it didn't.
Really just more frustrated that I should have tested it...

(As it is, the entry in the Release file won't be there the way
debian-cd works unless the uncompressed file is generated by
apt-ftparchive, so I'd have to remove it after building the Release
file.  But then the Release file would be technically incorrect,
because it would reference a missing file.  Catch-22.)
